THE DICKSON EMERITUS PROFESSORSHIP AWARD

The Dickson Award was created by a gift endowment from the late Edward A. Dickson, a Regent of the University of California from 1913 to 1946. The award honors outstanding research, scholarly work, teaching, and/or educational service (e.g. service in professional, University, Academic Senate, emeriti, departmental or editorial posts, or committees) performed by an emeritus or emerita professor since retirement. Each of the UC campuses has received funds that will support one or more awards each year.
